Garbage in/Garbage Out

One of the greatest benefits of living in a society that prides itself on order is FREE TRASH DROPOFF! With a dozen drop off points around Munich and the ability to get rid of just about everything, you may never have trash on your street again. Back in the states it would cost you $25 minimum per visit, and in Paris we never found such an important treasure. But there it was a bit different. Just leave things at your doorstep, and guaranteed they were gone within 10 minutes. Everything was recycled. But back in Munich, you can drop off cardboard, glass, plastics, wood, yard waste, furniture, metal, and about 20 other things I can’t remember. You just show your trash to the floor assistants, and they point you to the right bin. It’s easy and it’s free. This is a godsend for those just moving to Munich, and need to get rid of all those IKEA boxes.
